We're closed to most students
The Government is asking parents to keep children at home whenever possible – schools remain open only for children who need to attend.


Our academy is a secondary school for ages 11-16. We are a comprehensive school. We accept applications from all young people who live in our local community.

We follow Salford City Council’s admissions code and are able to admit 300 pupils per year group.

To make an application you should:

  1. Read the Secondary School Admission Policy from Salford Council 2020-21
  2. Complete the admissions application form online.  If you have any problems, please contact the School Admissions team.
  3. Salford City Council School Admissions Team will contact you.

If we receive more applications than we have places, we will look at each application against our admissions policy. If you wish to appeal, please see our admissions policy for information.
